I really thought I had seen just about every kind of greed imaginable here in Hollywood, but, everyday you see an entirely new level that makes you laugh at the Gordon Gecko version in Wall Street. The Executive Producer of that Farrah Fawcett dying special that aired this week is suing Ryan O'Neal and Alana Stewart who was also a producer on the film.
The man who is suing is Craig Nevius who has known Farrah forever and at some point several years ago she wanted him to just document everything she was going through in regards to cancer. No one gave it a second thought. Farrah just wanted someone to record it all. Then, as Farrah started dying and was unable to really communicate and Ryan O'Neal figured there was some money to be made off this film, he is alleged to have physically threatened Nevius in order to get the film so he could sell it on his own.
Not to be outdone by that greed, Alana Stewart, who was filming Farrah as a favor to Farrah also realized there was money to be made in this whole Farrah dying film thing and told Nevius she was not going to hand over any of the footage she had shot of Farrah unless Nevius double the amount of money Alana was being paid and give her a producer credit. Nice huh? It's always good to be worrying about producer credits while your supposed “friend” is lying there dying. Wow, this is low even by Hollywood standards.
Nevius is suing to determine who owns the rights to everything and has control of the film. O'Neal was shocked that he could be accused of anything so awful in this time of need. Yeah, this is the same guy who had no idea about the meth in his room until he plead guilty.
